AMR 2016: Best Day Out (Indoors) for Families

The Amsterdam Mamas Recommend awards shine a spotlight on the best family activities, events, and services in the city for all budgets, ages, and interests. Nominated by parents, voted for by parents.

Presenting the winner of the category Best Day Out (Indoors) for Families:

NEMO Science Museum

The Science Museum, located in the Oosterdok, just east of Central Station, is five floors of educational fun for children of all ages. The engaging interactive exhibits involve - among other things - building, sorting, bubble-making and water play. There are lively demonstrations on the first floor, where children can learn more about a given scientific principle. The upper deck, with its solar-powered water exhibits and stunning views of the city, is a great open-air playground for warmer days, and the adjacent cafe is the perfect place to pause for lunch.


Honourable Mentions went to:

ARTIS - Amsterdam Royal Zoo

Linnaeushof (Heemstede)


Also nominated:

Monkey Town (Uithoorn)

Naturalis Biodiversity Center (Leiden)

Nintje museum (Utrecht)

Race Planet

Railway Museum (Utrecht)
